1. Today is couple appreciation day. What do you most appreciate about being a couple (consider current or past relationships)a
I think that there’s a conncection and a comfort level.

2. It is also Global Love Day. How can you or how will you extend love today?
By making love, of course!

3. May 1 is loyalty day as well, originally it had to do with patriotism in the United States. That meaning aside, in what ways are you loyal?
I help the people that matter to me, and stick up for them no matter what.

4. So it seems today is also Phone In Sick day. When is the last time you phoned in sick? Where you really sick? How did you spend the “sick” day?
Well, I wish I would have known that this morning! The last time I called in sick was in March. I was sick – not so sick I couldn’t probably have gone to work, but it was good to spend the entire day on the couch, wrapped in blankets, vegging out to TV and sleeping.

5. May 1, 1840 the world’s first adhesive postage stamp was issued in the United Kingdom. Who would you like to see on a postage stamp?
I would like to see Steve Jobs on a postage stamp. I think there was talk of doing it, but it never happened.

Bonus:  How was your first day of May?
It was good! It didn’t feel like May, as it was cold, but I didn’t have a day of meetings, and everything just rolled along.

1. Does your workplace have a “casual Friday” or a day when you can dress down or out of uniform?
Not really – every day is pretty much a “casual Friday”, and people only dress up if they have important meetings.

2. Has the growth of social media and unabashed sharing of personal info on social media made you MORE or LESS cautious about your privacy?
I think more cautious. Being on social media really makes you realize how much information is out there.

3. Is gay marriage legal where you live?
Yes, it is. I thought it was legal now in all 50 states.

4. Is smoking marijuana legal where you live? Under what circumstances?
Unfortunately not yet – neither medical or recreational is. I’m hoping that it will be soon – if not I may have to move.

5. Give us a hashtag that best describes your weekend. Hashtag must be 15 letters or less.
Hmmm…probably #PizzadOut …sometimes.

Bonus:  Have you ever stalked a celebrity? Who?
I honestly never have. There are very few celebrities I think I’d want to stalk.

Wicked Wednesday: Strangers

We often think the stranger is the one we do not know,
And on the train to nowhere in the subways deep below,
We look at all the faces and we wonder who they are,
And why they’re traveling tonight, and whether they’ll go far.

I look at all the people and make stories of their lives:
The businessman reading a book he got from the archives.
The student standing listening to his music on his phone -
I wonder if he’s meeting friends or going home alone.

I see a lone reflection in the windows of the train,
For I am also on my own, and feeling not quite sane.
I’m lonely and I’m anxious, and I’d like some company,
To have a brief encounter just to pause the misery.

Within the glass I catch the eye of a young handsome man,
He’s standing right behind me, and I wonder if I can.
He stands a little closer, pressing right into my back,
And I can feel how hard he is as the train goes black.

We’re traveling through an empty stretch of tunnel and it’s dark,
I wish we were alone so we could see that struggling spark.
I press myself against him and I wish that I could turn
If my raw desperation he can easily discern.

The lights come back and we are pulling now into the station.
The man I knew’s no longer there, and I have no elation.
Although I don’t know who he was, I knew him in a way,
He wasn’t quite a stranger, and I feel a deep dismay.

I often think of strangers as the ones deep in shadow,
But sometimes it’s the ones I’m closest to that I don’t know.
I don’t know what they’re feeling and the chasm’s growing wide,
I keep my feelings to myself, and hidden deep inside.

Some times I see reflections of the moments that might be,
I hold these closest to my heart and hope they will change me.
We live our lives like strangers as we’re riding on a train,
I wonder if we’ll ever have the love we had again.

TMI Tuesday: Sexual Revelations

1. When did you see your first naked women that was not a family member?
Hmmm…it was probably in the locker room in junior high when we had to dress out for PE.

2. When did you see your first naked man that was not a family member?
That would have been in junior high as well.

3. What were the circumstances of each situation?
For the former,  it would have been changing and taking a shower after PE class. We were required to shower, and the shower was not separate stalls, but one room with like 6 shower heads.  For the latter, it would have been the first time I had sex.

4. At what age did you first witness sexual nudity? Was it online or in print?
That was definitely in print, when I was about 8. I remember my Dad had Playboys under the mattress, and they were something else. That was also when I discovered that Playboy did, indeed, have great fiction and read my first Stephen King short story.

5. Sexual revolution–When was yours OR It hasn’t happened yet?
Hmmm…sometimes I think it was when I went off to college, and discovered the joy of sex toys.

Bonus: What’s the best sex advice or sex education book you’ve ever read? (Yes, it must be a book, could be online but a book)
That’s a tough one – I rarely read those kinds of books…but I would say that Carrie’s Story was a bit of an education to read.
